Hynotherapy via Skype

What happens in a Hypnotherapy Counselling Psychology session and how can hypnotherapy be explained? In simple terms a Skype Hypnotherapy Session is really no different from seeing me in person.

The initial free consultation session will allow us to get a better idea of what personnel issues you may be struggling with, take some history and develop some self-empowerment in order to pinpoint the direction you would like your therapy to go.

This initial consultation stage is able to give me an idea, of the types of therapeutic traditions that may suite you best, in order for you to get the most benefit out of the sessions.

Person Centered Approach

Further sessions will employ a person centered approach and integrate different therapeutic traditions such as cognitive behavioural therapy, brief psychotherapy, exposure therapy designed for phobias and Hypnotherapy. So what does all this mean? Let me explain a little further!

Client-centred or person-centred therapy is a counselling approach that recognises the importance for the client to take an active role within his or her own therapy. Here you are encouraged to take your own direction of empowerment supported by the therapist.


Psychological education and Psychology is simply suggesting, to ourselves, social and developmental theories that have proven,

The aim is to try to keep you in the present so to clarify your insights and promote self- independence and positive internal recognition, without, heavily relying on social networks that, at times can lower your self-esteem.

Person centred therapy allows clients to boost self-esteem and confidence. The therapists will promote an understanding, empathetic and honest approach to whatever may trouble you, allowing you to become the expert to your own integration of fulfilling relationships and expression of true feelings.


Psychotherapy or the shorter version known as the, Psychodynamic approach offers the tradition of psychotherapy over a shorter period of time and, is often more intense hence, integrating a person centred approach so, to support your exploration of past experiences.

These past experiences form patterns of emotional content that are linked to fixed ways of behaving whilst in similar situations within the present or future interactions. Whether these patterns are still conducive to the present experience, or not, we tend to keep on using the same pattern. Psychodynamic therapy helps us pin point were these patterns originated from, so we can make sense of them, work through them and, make changes in order to overcome them.

This type of integrated therapy if, explained systematically, and in an easy to understand manner, can really deepen your understanding of any difficulties you may be experiencing and help to promote change.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Our therapists use an integrated style and mixture of therapies to suite your personal needs. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is immersed into your therapy sessions with your therapist.

Here negative patterns of thought or beliefs, morals and ideals about self and the world, are challenged, in order, to change unwanted patterns of behaviour or treat many mood disorders such as depression.

Firstly, hypnotherapy is a deep state of relaxation that can be anchored to your own resourceful states out of therapy.

Secondly, and, something that is covered in more detail in the psychological education, when we become stressed or depressed and out of our present focus of attention, our body is using a particular branch of the nervous system to negotiate the demands of a busy schedule.
